The Range Function Centre, located at 308 Copland Street, is a short drive from the Wagga Wagga CBD. For the convenience of delegates that would prefer not to drive, NSWAA have arranged buses to transport delegates from accommodations in the Tarcutta Street area to The Range Function Centre in the morning before conference, returning in the afternoon after conference, and also a return transfer for the Annual Conference Dinner. When purchasing conference tickets, delegates will be asked to nominate whether they will be using the bus to transport them to The Range and back to Tarcutta Street so we can ensure that we arrange the appropriate number of buses.

Tickets are limited so get in quick to avoid disappointment!
